Beckham to Style 'Peaky Blinders' Apparel
Endemol Shine Group has secured a deal with the David Beckham-backed men’s fashion label Kent & Curwen for a line of apparel inspired by the series “Peaky Blinders.”
The line brings the flair of 1920’s London through sportswear, daywear, specifically sweatshirts, t-shirts, rugbies and more. The aesthetic plays on formal British dress codes and military references across sportswear; college stripes and cricket whites channeled into eveningwear, cropped Jockey silks and jackets that nod to the Duke of Windsor.
The show’s signature rose is reimagined in dark tone on army camouflage garments. A corresponding capsule collection, Garrison Tailors by Order of the ‘Peaky Blinders' contains three-piece tweed suits, signature collarless shirts, peg-leg wool trousers and flat caps in warm tones, a nod to the Victorian era and classic British style.
A collaboration between Kent & Curwen and Trickers include a shoe line. “A rare image of Kent & Curwen's founder, Eric Kent with his brother, soon after the end of WW1, became my creative starting point for next winter's collection,” says Daniel Kearns, creative director, Kent & Curwen. “…If Eric and his wife Dorothy were creating this brand today, what would they be wearing, what would they be into and who would they be socializing with?" “Peaky Blinders” is currently airing on the BBC.
